We're Back

We're wetter, and dirtier, but none the worse for wear. We had a great time!! Now I remember why we camp! It's certainly not for the rain and dirt, the damp feeling sleeping bags, or the perpetual wet towels. It's for the memories. Kids getting to know second cousins, adults catching up with adult cousins and aunts and uncles. Watching the kids swim and build sand castles at the beach. Sitting around the evening campfire sharing laughter and stories. I'm so glad my cousin thought to ask us to go camping!

The little (2nd) cousins get to know each other while colouring by lantern light.

Didn't I say it always rains when we camp?

Squirt hides out from the rain and dampness with Grampa.

The rain stopped and we enjoyed a second evening around the fire.

Camping gets a two thumbs up :o)!


  1. That looks like a lot of fun! Grandpa looks happy! Is that your dad?

  2. So fun! Great memories for you all. So glad that you had travel mercies and are back safely to begin a new week.

  3. That pic of Squirt and Grampa is priceless!


  4. ok, see, I would camp like that, too!

  5. Love, love, love that third picture. It's a winner! Glad you had such a great time (even though you know how I feel about camping!).

  6. Looks like FUN! Love that photo of your girl staying warm & dry in grampa's coat! :)

  7. See, just as I thought, it looks like it is so much fun to camp!


Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I love to hear from my readers!
